If you had the chance to read our story on the Lincoln Continental yesterday, then you read this line: "The overall look of the Continental Concept oddly reminds us of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur."
We're not the only one to take notice of this.
Car Design News reports that Bentley isn't too keen on this similarity. Luc Donckerwolke, Bentley's chief designer went to Facebook to voice his complaints.
"I would have called it Flying Spur concept and kept the four round lights," said Donckerwolke.
Donckerwolke then went to Lincoln chief designer David Woodhouse's Facebook to say, "Do you want us to send the product tooling?" Since then, the comment was deleted, but Car Design News made sure to get a copy of it.
"This behavior is not respectable. Building a copy like this is giving a bad name to the car design world," said Donckerwolke when asked by Car Design News.
This was followed by a comment from by Bentley's exterior design chief, Sangyup Lee.
"It is very disappointing, especially for an exclusive brand like Lincoln."
So does Bentley have a point, or do they have sour grapes over the Continental? Have your say in the comments below.
